Gainesville Condo Rental Photos and Description
Condo/townhouse, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 BATHS, plus sleeper sofa (Sleeps 1-9)

Now offering 15% off last minute April bookings of 3 nights or more!!!!

Thank you for looking at our vacation home!! Although we use the 'Book It Now' and the 'Quote' feature, we do advise that you also email us when inquiring and make sure you look at the rental agreement before finalizing payment. Sometimes the quotes can be inaccurate or we can have various promotions depending on your dates! We want to give you the correct and BEST rate! Please also note there is a credit card payment fee with 'Book it now'. We are more than happy to hold your dates and have you submit a check/money order to avoid that fee. Just email the owner :)

During football/graduation season, sometimes the quotes can be crazy! That is not our goal! We will work with you on price if you are looking for a longer stay during our football/graduation season! There are no cleaning fees with this unit :)

NO CLEANING FEES!!! Two bedroom 2.5 bath condo located in the heart of Gainesville!! Less than two miles to UF, BEN HILL GRIFFIN STADIUM (AKA THE SWAMP!!), Shands, Malcolm Randall VA Medical Center, North Florida Regional Medical Center, the veterinary school, and all on convenient bus routes! Less than 5 minute walk to any bus stop and the grocery store! No car needed. This condo is in a quiet professional neighborhood. Walk out your own private fenced in back porch and you are at the nice refreshing pool! This is an excellent vacation home or just for a visit for those amazing gator games, gator nationals, girls weekend, gatorback, thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, a weekend wedding or graduation!!

Please note: that both bedrooms & showers are upstairs, while the sleeper sofa is downstairs. Sleeper sofa now has a 3 inch mattress top pad that provides extra comfort!! There is also NO land-line telephone in the unit. All phone calls must be made from renter's personal cellular device.

We are BABY friendly!! We have baby gates, high chairs, pack n plays, and outlet plugs! Just request!!

Two huge closets and dressers in each bedroom!! This is an excellent vacation home for those getting away from colder weather!

Capacity

The Condo sleeps 6 comfortably however we will accommodate up to 9...( has 1 queen, 1 double, and one pull out queen sized sleeper sofa with a newly added great mattress topper pad that's three inches thick). Plenty of room for an additional queen and twin air mattress (not provided). So, technically could sleep 9 people, just remember not to all try to shower at once or close together. There is only a 40 gallon water heater, and you will not have enough hot water! :) Both bedrooms are upstairs. Please email with any questions. We hope you will love our home as much as we have the past 10 years! We live close to the condo so if you have any questions or concerns or would like a tour before renting, please don’t hesitate to email us! We’d be happy to help you in any way!! We want your business, and therefore there are no cleaning fees!!

We also can coordinate the following services: massages, daycare, baby/child accessories, dinner reservations, bike rentals, manatee snorkeling reservations at Crystal River, and cleaning services for long term renters.

Please note there is an increased nightly rate for gator game weekends. $750 for entire weekend.. (rate for up to 6 people... each additional person $25 per night) We also back up to UF property, and there is a bus that will take you to the game for $10/roundtrip. Many of our renters love this option so you do not have to worry about traffic/parking/drinking & driving/etc. :)Great bonus!!

We book early for gator game weekends, so plan far ahead!!

There is also an increased rate for the Gator Nationals 4 day event each year, and graduations!

Please consider renting from us... We do NOT charge a cleaning fee, so it saves you money!!!!

Please read before inquiring

Responsible renters over the age of 25 only. Copy of Drivers license required. No kegs, loud parties, or pets allowed on premise. Maximum amount of people spending the night is 9. Violation of these will result in renters being removed and neither deposit or rental payment will be returned. We are close friends with the neighbors and ask that you please respect this. Please don’t put us in the position to have to remove you from the premises. No smoking inside premises! The condo association now charges $25 for any trash left outside the front door of the unit. If trash is left outside, the fee(s) unfortunately have to be taken out of your security deposit :( So please be careful with that.

Check-in times may vary based if someone else is checking out the day you check in, to allow for cleaning. Check out time is eleven. We can sometimes accommodate early check ins and late check outs if not one is renting before/after you. We really will not know this until about 2 days before your stay, however.

Hope you will choose us as your vacation rental getaway!!

Love this condo and UF!! Go gators!!!

Stephanie purchased this condo in 2003

Recently married and had to find something to do with my former home!

Peaceful, quiet, professional neighborhood. Smaller neighborhood with very few units make it the perfect 'kept secret' neighborhood of Gainesville! Love the fact of walking to the grocery store, bank, Two Bits bar in the UF Hilton, the museum, butterfly exhibit, Harn Museum, center of performing arts, or just Gumbie's Pizza or Wok N Roll Chinese! Hop on a bus easily to get to UF!!!

Better Than Advertised!

I will never rent a hotel room again as long as this condo is available. It is right across the street from the west side of the University and right near shopping, dining and grocery stores. The condo is better priced than hotels and much cleaner and more convenient. The place was fully stocked with towels, linens, utensils and all amenities. It is a stone's throw from the pool and the owner was available by phone and email to immediately answer any and all questions. I highly recommend this place!

The pictures were completely accurate. We arrived to find the condo clean and ready for our stay. It was so nice to have a kitchen and a dining table to eat our meals and play board games. Traffic was a bit heavy that weekend, which made it difficult at times to get into the neighborhood, but we cut through the nearby hotel parking lot when we needed to get out to a stoplight. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks, Stephanie!

I needed to be in Gainesville, Florida because my sister was having surgery. This condo became available for the time I was going to be in Gainesville. It was wonderful to come to a place that was quiet, clean, great amenities, centrally located to be able to easily get to where I needed to be and no more than a couple of turns to navigate. Because this was an unplanned trip for me, the owner, Stephanie was so helpful and so easy to work with to get everything set up for me and my nephew's arrival. It was so much better for me than staying at a hotel, I didn't have to eat out every meal and was able to wash my clothes before going home. Being able to have less stress for a trip that was not a pleasure trip sure made my life so much easier. Thank you again, Stephanie for such a great place to come home to at the end of the day. I will definitely stay here again when I return to Gainesville.

We loved the condo. It was clean, attractive and had all the comforts of home! Close to many restaurants, as well as the FSU campus. We really enjoyed walking the campus. We also appreciated that they were able to accommodate us at the last minute. The only negative was some construction in the area.

I stayed at this wonderful condo for a month while doing an internship in Gainesville. The condo is very comfortable and conveniently located close to many shopping and dining options. Loved my stay and Stephanie was very kind to check in with me often and make sure everything was going well. Would definitely stay here again if I come to Gainesville!

We spent four nights at this condo and had a wonderful time. It was very clean and well stocked with paper and cleaning products. The downstairs kitchen and living area was spacious, and the attached deck was a great addition. The location was perfect for shopping, restaurants and proximity to UF. The price was very good, especially when you compare it to a hotel room. The owner was very helpful, and we will definitely stay here again.

We've stayed here before and will probably stay here again, because it provides all of the conveniences and privacy of a home at an extremely reasonable rate. Plus, the owner provides very personal service, making sure everything is clean and ready for your stay. :)
